Blue Guitar by Jimmy Buffett
Great song written by his drummer and guitarist!

Capo 4- D-G x3 Bm-A-G-D
Repeat intro three times! Listen very closely to get timing right and how many times to 
strum the chord

D                 Bm
Once I knew a man
        D                 Bm
Showed me the slight of hand
D                      Bm               D           Bm
Blink of an eye, he danced across the strings
        D                     Bm
Played a song I'd never heard
 D              Bm
Poignant and absurd
D                      Bm        D      Bm   A
To this day, it leaves me wondering
G            D
How I wish tomorrow I was fishin
                  A
Boy you've got a mission
                     D
Shake it, rattle and roll
G                     D
Now, just use your intuition
                   E
You'll get less competition
                         A    D
From the clock up on the wall

Chorus:

D       G
You are what you are
D          G
You dream what you dream
D           G                D            G
Play on your blue guitar for me
D          G
Play me a serenade
D          G
A simple masquerade
 D            G                Bm-A-G-D
Play on your blue guitar for me
Yeah

 D                     Bm
'Was he real or make believe
D           Bm
Someone to deceive
D             Bm              D      Bm
Time is just a folly we can't see
D                    Bm
If you only know one song
D                    Bm
Play it right or wrong
D                    Bm             D       Bm     A
The truth is always somewhere in between
G                     D
You and I, we can't change the weather
                    A
We're all in this together
                         D
So let the strong winds blow
G                       D
Now things will be much better
                  E
Don't become a prisoner
                         A     D
The reason you should know

Chorus:

D         G
You are what you are
D           G
You dream what you dream
D             G              D             G
Play on your blue guitar for me
D         G
Play me a serenade
D          G
A lover's masquerade
 D            G                Bm-A-G-D
Play on your blue guitar for me


BREAk: Play the bass notes in the Bm-A-G-D progression


G            D
Boy I wish tomorrow I was fishin
                  A
Boy you've got a mission
                     D
Shake it, rattle and roll
G                     D
Now, just use your intuition
                   E
You'll get less competition
                         A    D
From the clock up on the wall

Repeat chorus Chords for the rest of the song


You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me

Play me a serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your blue guitar for me

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me

Play me a serenade
Red wine or lemonade
Play on your blue guitar for me

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me

Play me a serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your blue guitar for me

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me
